Inspiration Monday: Tugboat Printshop

The woodcuts of Tugboat Printshop are amazingly inspirational on so many levels. The detail. The color. The imagination. The size. The amount of time that must go into carving the blocks. Wow!

I enjoy the next print because of basket prints I make and the woven nature of the home depicted.

It's also exciting to see the blocks used to create detailed multi-colored prints like these.
